Autumn Progress

I am making some progress on the Autumn Trio. I am doing the background in a hunter green wool with flecks of yellow and orange. But I had to make the birds, sparrows, as if I used black for ravens, they would blend into the dark background.

As Deanne says quite often, you just have to go along with your mat and sometimes, it works out and sometimes, you learn from the whole experience.


  1. Looks good so far. If you need to you can always go back and outline the birds for contrast.

  2. ooooohhhhhhh! Julie I LOVE what you've done so far!! I'm lovin the striped pumkin in the center! Your colors are wonderful! I know what you mean by learning as you go.... seems like every rug I do is learning something new!! LOL!
    Keep having fun! Thank-you for showing your progress!!

  3. I love that fun pumpkin with all the cool decorations. I think the different colored birds work well! It's a fun rug, rather than scary! I love seeing what you've done so far!
